Chinese Government Reportedly Bans Agencies from Using Apple Products
Sources inside of China say that the government there has begun banning official agencies of the Chinese government from procuring Apple products -- iPhones, Macs, iPads, etc.
The news comes as international concerns over Apple products being used for espionage intensify. As MMi recently reported, even the Russian government -- while not banning Apple products in any official capacity -- wants Apple's source code as a means of investigating the extent of purported espionage capabilities.
So what's really taking place inside of China today? Officials aren't authorized to speak on the matter. But, according to Bloomberg, ten Apple products "were omitted from a final government procurement list distributed in July."
“When the government stops the procurement of products, it sends a signal to corporates and semi-government bodies,” Mark Po, an analyst with UOB Kay Hian Ltd., tells Bloomberg. “The Chinese government wants to make sure that overseas companies shouldn’t have too much influence in China.”
